Phantom ROM for Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100! [KitKat+Note 3/S5 Features]


For this week’s Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 ROM of the Week, check out Phantom ROM.

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, Phantom ROM brings you some great Note 3 and Galaxy S5 features so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Phantom ROM, as its name implies, also comes with great performance and long battery life for those concerned for using it as daily driver. It comes with battery/performance tweaks, and memory/RAM tweaks that will help you get the most out of your Note 2.

As for features, you will find a slew of Note 3 features including Note 3 Air Command, Pen Window, Scrap Booker, Action Memo, Note 3 apps, and much more.

Phantom ROM also gives you the option to install additional S5/Note3 apps/features, which comes as a separate zip file. These include S5 Accuweather widget and Note2/Note 3 sounds. You will also get S5 apps for Calculator, Email, MMS, My Files, Video Player, Scrapbook, S Health, S Translator, keyboard, S5 wallpapers, and some more. There’s also 13 S5 launcher themes, which is a ton of great themes you can customize your TouchWiz launcher with. These are not installed by default when you install the zip file, you can install them one-by-one as you need. (See video above for instructions on this.)

Overall, Phantom ROM combines many of new Note 3/S5 features without causing a havoc on your app drawer with the user-selected approach for many of its features. Definitely check it out for this week’s ROM of the week and do let me know what you think!

  14. Redeye Dog says:

    Well, I got a message during installing the ROM. Something about my root access needing to be fixed. I did not allow it to “fix” because I had root access before installing this ROM. It does appear though that I have lost root access. Is this a result of installing this ROM?

  15. Neilor Holanda says:

    Hi there!

    Thanks for posting this one. I didn’t knew about it.

    The Phantom ROM is the BEST ROM I have ever tried! The install process is absolutely fantastic and everything worked great from the start on my N7100 running 4.4.2, even WiFi. The Air Command is awesome!


  27. Ganesh Bhat says:

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks allot for support and providing review of this nice rom.
    This is the best rom I ever tried. No issues at all. Battery backup is stunning. End of the day, I am left with 80% battery.. Running from almost one week, everything is superb.

    I would like to remove the battery icon from notification, some how i end up touching it when pulling notification bar down and it just consumes my touch and does not do anything.

    How can I do that?

  28. DaBheans says:

    I tried following the sequence of installation (ROM > Resource > Air Command > SuperSU) and all works great. However upon checking SuperSu, I found out that it’s not working. 🙁 Can you help me resolve this please? Cheers.

  29. chris says:

    how to install phantom resources?

    • chris says:

      already installed it. all working great now except for one thing, do you know how to fix the supersu. it says that if you just upgraded to android 4.3, you need to manually re-root it. any ideas how to fix it?

  30. Sebastian says:

    hi, i installed the rom without any problems but the wifi doesn’t work, i got the fix but i cannot flash it from Mac OS is there a way to do it?

  31. Suresh K Madhavan says:

    Phantom Rom version 3.1 is available at XDA. But the download not completing due to site problems I belive. Also the same downloads available at Mojosmirror site. There also the download not completing. Anybody can provide a solution?

  32. Ishai says:

    Hi, Thanks for the ROM, Works Great.
    I Had no wifi to, and the patch didn’t work so i found one that dose:

    flash with Odin in the PDA / AP line, it kind of “glitched” when i rebooted,
    it initially rebooted itself twice, but then it booted wifi and all.

  33. Redeye Dog says:

    I decided to install v4.0. It didn’t show any resources packages made for 4.0 so I was hoping that they were all rolled in with ROM. The install using Aroma installer went perfect. Setup the phone and then installed the stability update. Unfortunately, it’s stock phantom with none of the resources from previous builds. I’m wondering if they are going to release a resource package to support the 4.0 build.

    Otherwise, everything runs very smooth. I just wish I had access to some of the tweaks.

  34. Sonay says:

    Works great except Wifi. The patch file gives md5 error with ODIN.
    Any comment?

  35. nick says:

    i figured out the wifi prob.
    for those who couldnt toggle the wifi icon, its becoz your note2 is not knox disabled.

    1st, flash KS_MULTI_CSC_N7100XXUEMJ5
    2nd, flash MJ5BLPatch.tar.md5.
    3rd, flash wifi fix for MJ2.
    all of those 3 files, u can google it or get it from xda forum, then flash it with odin. ( i personally using odin 3.07, flash on PDA.)
    Then, get the cwm recovery from this website.
    Then only install phantom rom.

  36. chris says:

    Reason of problem. Latest 4.3 built have new bootloader and samsung have implemented knox security

    There are two methods to fix this.

    Method 1: You are on old bootloader (No warranty bit in download mode) and dont want to update bootloader, Flash Dr. Ketan’s Wifi patch.

    Method 2: You are on bootloader and want to Flash New bootloader

    Files needed:
    Odin 3.9
    Dr. Ketan’s Wifi patch
    BL_MJ5 Bootloader

  37. Viv says:


    Tried flashing this ROM … phone stuck on installer screen saying wiping data for more than an hour. Is is normal?

    It is safe to use reboot into recovery when this is going on?


  38. idriss says:

    Hi Ma

    is there any phantom rom for galaxy note 2 n7105?
    Or any other rom whom must be ling battery life and more featured with air command and else?

  39. nuXNub says:

    Thanks for high-lighting the ROM Max!
    Followed your link to XDA and downloaded the ROM from there. It’s on version 6.0 now, wi-fi worked out of the box,
    Viper4Android is bundled in and the battery’s life is better than stock. Still exploring. 🙂
    Again, thanks for drawing attention to this ROM.

  40. Gunjan Adhvaryu says:

    Please provide necessary instructions that how I should install phantom v7 rom on my network unlocked sgh-t889 running on stock 4.3 rom.

  41. Redeye Dog says:

    v7 is nice on my n7100!! I’m using it with Nova launcher instead of the default touchwiz. There is one weird thing that has happened in both v6 and now v7. My wifi antenna will just stop working. No errors. It turns off and then doesn’t turn back on even with a reboot.

    The only thing which gets the antenna working again is shutting the phone down completely. I guess that’s a workaround for now, but I’m wondering if anyone else is having that problem. I’m trying to narrow down the cause and the closest thing I’ve got so far is I think it may have something to do with scanning NFC codes. Not sure yet.

    If I find out, I’ll post but it ran for a couple days before it happened after installing v6 and v7. I always do full wipe so not because improper install AFAIK. Any ideas Max? I tried to report on XDA and although its a treasure trove of information, it seems that only special people can post there. Or at least, they won’t let me post. Something about developers only..

  42. Aravind says:

    Thanks Kevin i got the wifi issue fixed plz check this link

  43. mn says:

    which is better?
    Phantom rom or Omni rom?

    How to download Indian firmware for galaxy note2

  46. Good Bunter says:

    Hi Everyone.. this Phantom 7 rom works almost flawlessly as far as I know..
    The installation process is pretty smooth as well.
    One issue that I don’t know how to address – and yes I have contacted the developers of Runtastic.
    I want to use the Runtastic Pedometer Pro which I have used successfully for a very long time on other roms.
    Now on this ROM the g sensor for walking does not register steps… Yeess the sensor has been tested and is working but the free and paid versions of the pedometer do not sense the steps under any circumstances. I tried two others ..Noom and Accupedo and both these work normally and would be acceptable alternatives if necessry.
    Would someone with Phantom 7 mind checking how the Runtastic pedometer works on their Note 2.
    In advance thanks so much!

  59. Redeye Dog says:

    Just installed v10 on my n7100. Everything seems to work but looks like bluetooth is broke on v10. BT worked great on v9 with all my BT devices. Can’t pickup anything with V10. Anyone else having BT issues ith v10?

    This is a show stopper because I cannot pair with my Blueant Hands Free device in my car anymore. I gues I could go back to v9 and keep my fingers crossed..

    • Redeye Dog says:

      I need to update my post because after switching between v9 & v10, I found my problem which was interfering with “calling.” This ended up being a program I had. However, the BT remains broke. I verified that v9 detects all my BT devices but v10 will not detect anything. It turns on and recognizes my phone but that’s all.

      I did try the fix that was published for BT range issues in v9 and it does not fix v10 BT. I love this rom and made a donation so I’m hoping they will put out a BT fix for v10 soon. Otherwise, this rom is SOLID for the n7100! Awesome features!!

      • Redeye Dog says:

        OK. So I got v10 to work right but had no idea why. Then v11 came out and decided to try that. No dice. So I d/led different copies and installed from different directories and each time, BT was not working right. Then I thought back to the time I got v10 to work and realized I didn’t check BT until after I had installed my apps..

        So this time, I decided to see what was getting installed immediately after a new ROM is installed. I looked at my apps in google play and noticed that SU needed to update. I wondered if v1.94 was causing the BT problems. So I updated SU in google play and tried connecting to my blueant hands free device.

        BINGO!! It works with update to SU v1.94 but not with SU v1.94 from XDA as recommended. Perhaps this is isolated to my configuration. But I hope it helps someone. Phanthom v11 is working marvelously now!!

  60. Ionut Drobota says:

    Hello, i downloaded the rom and install it. It works fine, i love it but i have a big problem. When i try to cal it says “unregistered on network” cant make calls.
